plate boundary project by: zach west

convergent boundaries

type of stress - compression

plate motion - away towards each other, when oceanic and continental plates move at each other subduction occurs.

land forms - mountains, volcanoes, earthqaukes

real world example - The Washington-Oregon coastline of the United States is an example of this type of convergent plate boundary.

divergent boundaries

type of stress - tension

plate motion - the plates are moving away from each other.

land forms - this can cause earthquakes, volcanoes, rivers, and islands

real world example - the mid atlantic ridge is a real world example of divergent boundaries.

transform boundaries

type of stress - tension

plate motion - moves parallel in opposite directions

land forms - earthquakes, mountains, trenches, and volcanoes

real world example - the san Andreas fault is a real world example of a transform boundary.
